Rod Stewart announced on his website this week that he will reunite with his old Faces band members Ronnie Wood and Kenney Jones for some songs during the 2015 Prostate Cancer United Kingdom charity event on Sept. 5.

The Rock 'N' Horsepower event will take place at Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Ewhurst, Surrey, according to Stewart's post. The rock legend made the announcement as he is slated to begin a series of six concerts at Las Vegas' Caesar's Palace on Wednesday.

The Faces, formerly the Small Faces, incorporated the soul and psychedelic sounds of the 1960s, according to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame blog. Stewart joined the group in 1969 when Steve Marriott left to started Humble Pie.

The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

"This year is the 40th anniversary since The Faces parted ways so it's about time we got together for a jam," Stewart said in the statement. "Being in The Faces back in the day was a whirlwind of madness but my God, it was beyond brilliant. We are pleased to be able to support Prostate Cancer U.K."

Jones issued a statement on Stewart's website as well, saying he was looking forward to performing at the charity event.

"The years of The Faces were some of the best of my life and I'm so proud to have been a part of the band," Jones said. "I'm unbelievably excited to have the opportunity to get up on stage with Rod and Ronnie again. Ronnie Lane and Ian McLagan will be dearly missed but we'll raise a glass to them."

Wood said in a statement released by the Hurtwood Polo Club that he believes fans will enjoy the old songs and the reunion.

"Getting back on stage with the lads playing 'Stay with Me' and other favorites will be a blast and will make this a very special night," the statement said. "Being in The Faces was a mad and brilliant time for all of us and although we don't have Ronnie and Mac with us anymore this is our chance to remember them and say 'Had Me a Real Good Time.'"

Mark Bishop, of Prostate Cancer U.K., said that he believes the reunion will turn out "to be something pretty special and we can't wait."
